Abstract :
The windows of the great hall, the chapel, the porch, the priest's chamber and 'Queen Anne's bedroom' are all garnished with stained glass - figures, roundels, coats of arms and interesting fragments from a variety of sources English and Continental, and of all centuries from the 15th to the 20th. The most striking are perhaps the four Oxford scholars in the great hall, wearing their medical gowns, with the 17th c. arms of the Duc de Guise below; the three medieval Flemish roundels in Queen Anne's room; and in the chapel the virtues [early 20th c.] inspired by Reynolds' designs for New College, Oxford, alongside a late 19th-c. Crucifixion, no doubt by C. E. Kempe and Co. The collection as a whole is fully worthy of a fine historic house. ;
